Creativity 521 {linky Party} #10 - Big Sister, Small Sister

By A Happy Mum @A_Happy_Mum
Remember I was telling you how the letter 'A' holds a special place in my heart and that my no.2 will have her name beginning with 'A' too?
It's not hard to figure out what name we have chosen if you know the hints:
1) Princess
2) Sea
3) Five letters
Yes, we've decided to name her after the Little Mermaid, ARIEL.
Creativity 521 {linky party} #10 - Big sister, small sisterIt's a two-letter difference spelling from Angel and I'd like to think of it in this way: That there is a ring holding my girls close to each other and they will be loving sisters in time to come. Naive thinking? Haha, not the first day you know me.
Anyway, in this week's Creativity 521, I am sharing with you a precious gift that I made for my girls. Yes, one for each!
It's a pair of matching DIY Sisters shirts!
Creativity 521 {linky party} #10 - Big sister, small sister
What you need:
1) Shirts (I chose a long-sleeved shirt for Angel and a cute little romper for Ariel)
2) T-shirt transfer sheets (I chose one for light fabrics as I preferred white to black shirts)
3) Iron and ironing surface
4) Image editing software (I used Photoshop)
Creativity 521 {linky party} #10 - Big sister, small sister Firstly, design your own image for the shirt. I did a really simple drawing of two girls holding onto a heart and a letter 'A' on their dresses. I also included their names so that each shirt will truly be unique and personalised. It makes Angel proud to see her name on her new shirt and she is also thrilled to learn about meimei's name too!
Once you are satisfied with your design, print it out onto the transfer sheet such that it is a mirror image of the original design. You may need to flip it horizontally or change your print settings.
Tip: Remember to test first and print it out onto a piece of plain paper to make sure you got this step correct!

Creativity 521 {linky party} #10 - Big sister, small sisterTrim away unwanted areas of the transfer sheet, leaving minimal space around your design. With the image facing down, start ironing in circles, making sure you overlap all edges of the transfer sheet. Ironing time depends on the size of your design and a guide is usually provided in the transfer sheet package.
Creativity 521 {linky party} #10 - Big sister, small sisterAllow the design to cool before gently peeling off the paper backing from one corner.
Creativity 521 {linky party} #10 - Big sister, small sisterVoila! We are done!
I'm not sure why my designs end up looking a little yellowish in the end, might be due to the old iron, but nonetheless, I'm still pretty proud of my first ever self-designed shirts! Angel couldn't wait to put on her new shirt while I'm saving Ariel's for the first day I see her.
Creativity 521 {linky party} #10 - Big sister, small sisterSee how delighted Angel is in knowing that she's becoming a big sister soon? Well, I sure hope that both my girls will be happy, cheerful and loving always!
A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life. ~Isadora James
